A COMPLETE ESTABLISHMENT.
The Large Dry Goods House of M. Kobn & Co., In
Yesterday afternoon we were shown
through the New York dry goods fctorc, on (
the corner of Douglas avenue and Main ,
street, by the courteous manager, Mr. Cash 1
Henderson, who has been with this large
establishment for over twelve years. This
business Is owned by Messrs. M. Kobn &
Co., and U one of the oldest established j
ones in the city, having been started here
in 1871, since which time it has steadily
prospered and grown in dimensions, until
to-day this firm carries one of the best and
largest stocks in the state. The eastern
firm of which M. Kobn U one of the part- I
nereis that oflvohn. Furehsrott & Ben
edict, who represent fully 81,000,000 capital.
They operate two eastern houses one at
Charleston, S. C, doing a business of ocr
$000,000 per year; one at Jacksonville,
doing a business of upwards of 500,000
per year, besides steel works at
Brooklyn, which produces the cele
brated Kobn steel. The houm in this
city, though starting with but a limited
trade when the country was new, has by
strict integrity and close" application to
business increased their sales to over $100,
000 a year. To accommodate their rapidly
increasing patronage it has been found im
peratively necessary to eularge their facili
ties for handling goods. Mr. Henderson,
with rare judgment and extensive experi
ence, is just the man to do this, and tin
der his supervision the storeroom has been
remodeled, a large window placed in the
cast side, and a gallery uxtcuding the I
length of each side of the store ha been 1
built, thus increasing their lloor 100111 to 1
312 by 23 feet, without enlarging thu main I
building. The east side cxtuuding Iroin j
the Iront to the rear is devoted to notions I
and fancy good, as is the front to notions !
and dre-s good. The west side is reserved '
for domestics, cassimercsand flannel", while j
at the rear is now being arranged and band- 1
somcly carpeted a cloak department. In,
the center has been placed a very bandy
and well appointed dek ol solid cherry w itb
stained glass front. This will be ucd by
the cashier, bookkeeper and the rear lor
measuring and wrapping goods. The gal
lery is reached by two stairwajs-, at the
north cud, and here is found, on the east
side, notions, boots and shoes, and on the
west side clothing and furnishing good.
The second floor proper is literally jauiuicJ
with all goods pertaining to the trade,
though there aie 011 this floor t:vo or three
distinct departments. In lhe front arc the
carpets, and a very large and varied stock,
too. embracing all kinds and fatalities from
the rag at ten cents per yard up to the cost
ly Moquette, velvets and brusel. At
the rear are liuudeds of trunks, valines,
etc , of all kinds and patterns and quality.
Next to the west window arc lace curtain,
lambrequins, tape-dries in fact there is
nothing in the dry good line, either of
ordinary quality orol the richest ami
most costly make but what is found in all
the varieties of the season and stjle on the
counters and shelves of this well-appointed
house. The proprietors ol this establish
ment have grown from poor boys to the en
vious position they now occupy in business
circles. This lias not been done by fortun
ate speculations, but strict adheeance to
business principles and honest dealing have
secured them the confidence of the public,
and it is with pridf that the Daily Kac.li:
refcis to them as an example worthy of
imitation by those who would rise to a suc
cessful and honorable business career.
Yesterday morning Ailhur McManony
filed a complaint in tbe police court, charg
ing Edwin Edwards with rilling his pockets
of 4-17 in money on Thursday night. It,
seems that these two joung men. in com
pany with the latter's brother, arrived in
the city Thursday, and late at night took
lodging at tho Farmers and Drovers' hotel,
where the theft is alleged to have been
made. Tho three men slept in the same
room, the two brothers oceupjing one of
the beds and McManony the other. The
latter swore in his complaint that his puck
ets were picket and the luoiicy taken while
he was asleep, icstcruay morning J.ti-
wards was arraigned before Judge Clcnn,
who upon hearing the case, decided that
the boys had been out 011 a "lark"' until a
late hour the previous night, and as there
was no evidence ot guilt established
against Edwards he was dischaged.
UNDERSTAND THEIR BUSINESS.
The globe iron works of this city is now,
siud for mouths has been turning out a class

prietor, is an energetic bu-iness min. and
did a wise thing when he secured lor ma

cupying a like position in the shops of the
Delaware, Maryland & Virginia railroad.
He is a gentleman of much intelligence,
thoroughly conversant with eery detail of

WHO OWNS THE SUNFLOWER.
For sometime past it lias been oserted
that the Missouri 1'acific did not. in fact.
gain ownership and control of the Fort j
Scott and Wichita railway. But there is ho j
doubt ol the lact even iT the evidence- or 1
its operation were not convincing. Mr.W. t
Chenault, tho former treasurer of the road,
has resigned, and is now s:rikiug for his ,
pay, which for some reason Is being with-
held. He writes a letter, so doc- Judge J. ,
D. Hill, and so does Francis Tieiuan. and (
the whole matter is published in the Fort j
Scott Monitor. Judge Hill, it will be -ecu,

owns the road. Chenault wind- up his j
claim as follows, the other two letters be-
ing attached : 1
I can natnen hair dozen ijuine-.s meu

Mr. Kd. 1 Harris, who is. at the head of
1 the state printing house, has long been con
ceded the honor of being the finest typo
I grapber in the state, a man whose taste
' and judgment touching matters pertaiaing
' to the "art preservative," is unerring and
ol the highest value. The following
private letter received from him yester
day, shows what he thinks orv lcnuas

TorEhM.May 21, 18S1.
Dear M. The daily Eagle oi yesterday

jean you stand it to print such a buster?

yet been invented. Hut you have always

going to make a failure of this.

daily in Kansas to-day. And it is as good
a it is good-looking. Success to the daily
Kaglk and its proprietors.
Ku. P. Harris.
It is pretiv well understood that the en
terprising publishers of the Wichita Eagle
have a new dally in pickle Just when it
will appear is a question evidently not as
yet decided. But when it does come, the
Daily Eagle will meet with a warm re
ception. Aside from the usual channel
through which a liberal advertising patron
age would flow into its columns, this new
enterprise could reasonably count upon a
remunerative- line of legal ads. But the
Murdock brothers are good business men,
and they realize that a daily newspaper
that is one that amounts to anything re
quires lots of hard work, and is an expen
sive luxuiv. Whf.sn it comes out we shall
bet our old" boo t that it will succeed. The
Vnninartutli liidf it welcome ill advauee.
j Since v.ritin-: the above the Daily Ea
I gli: has mule its appearance, and, like the
I weekly, iti brim-full of bright, spicy, in
terestiiig reading matter. The Pantaijraph
I predict- a bright fufurc for the Daily Ka
' glk. It will undoubtedly take the lead in
1 thi- western country, and none are more
I capable or being at the head of a good dai
I Iv paper than the Murdosk boys. In the
' mechanical make-up they acknowledge no
, superior. It is the neatest, brightest spici
i est and be-t dailv in the Hato to-day. May

A FUTURE GREAT.

gle, with eight long ami wide columns to
the page is btlorc us, with the names of M.
M. Jlurdi.ek as editor, and It. 1. Murdock
as bu-ines-manager. In his 'openingad-dre-s"
the editor say.-:
"For six jears pa-t we have had laid
away in boxes the neces-ary extra material
for a daily paper, awaiting the auspicious
hour when the demand should warrant the
venture." , ,
There has certainly been 110 lack or dc-liln-r.-itinii.

' waited until the iron is really hot before

prospers, the daily Eagle will. The ven
I lure is bravely niade, and. we are certain,
I will be generously met. Champion.

Washington, May 23. Mr. Kellogg offer
ed a resolution reciting that in the Investi
gation of the prosecution of the star route
cases before the committee on expenditures
on he department of justice c?idcnce had
been given which reflects upon his charac
ter and directed that a committee investi
gate the subject of his alleged connection
with the star route service, and whether he
received money for services rendered in
matters pending before the departments of
the government, "and whether he paid any
money to any oflicer on account of or in
connection with said service.
Mr. Crisp, a member of the Sprague com
mittee, said tbe gentleman was mistaken as
to tin; action which the committee had
takeu. ;No opposition had been made by it
to have any investigation or tho charge
against the gentleman. The gentleman
hunsciriiad appeared before the committee
with a request that ir the investigation was
to proceed further, he might be present
to cross-examine the witnesses, but the
assertion was distinctly made that if
there was to-be no more testimony taken by
the committee, the gentleman had no re
quest to make. Mr. Kellogg appealed in
the name of justice and his rights to the
house, to permit him to havo an investiga
tion. Mr. Blackburn said that some time in
April an indictment against his colleague
had been found. About three weeks ago
under technical pleas urged by His counsel
the prosecution against ttie gentleman was
di-missed. Since that time he bad been
waiting and hoping that the gentleman
would ask tho committee to authorize an
investigation or the charges affecting him
as a member or the house. Yesterday he
informed 3Ir. Kellogg that unless he offered
such resolutions he would himself rise in
his seat and do it. He held then as he held
now such a resolution prevented question.
Surely such charges not only affected the
dignity or the bouse, but they affected the
honor and dignity or the sovereign state ol
Mr. Kellogg demanded the previous ques
tion, but it was voted down.
Hammond moved to lay the resolution
nn tho ladle, but subsciiueiitlv withdrew it,
nml moved its reference to the committee
or judicary.with leave to report it back t
anytime, for consideration. If that com
mittee should report that under thp cir
cumstances the case was one of which the
house could legally investigate he would
withdraw his opposition. Hammond's
motion agreed to by 80.

cause he had been unfortunate in Wall

The committee arose and passed the bill.

of certain officers and enlisted men of the

senate proceeded to the consideration ol
the bill to provide for protecting the ITuit

ter of the act the president could pay otf

was not prepared to vest so vast a power in
the executive officer with authority to pay

Sherman supported the bill. He i saiu

Slater said that In 1895, when the Union

worth that mucn money, as iuej wuu

question went over.
Senator Blair yielded to Logan, who
asked and obtained unanimous consent to
take up aud dispose of the annual pension

Xew York, May 23. Tammany .Hall was
crowded to-night on the occasion or the
meeting which the advertisement -aid was
the first gun for the ptesidential eanvafs.
Tilden's name evokcu long and coutiuuwl
cheers whenever it was mentioned. Con
gressmen Blackburn ami Hun! were tho
principal speakers. Congressman Morri
son sent a letter reiterating his well kuown
views. Speaker Carlisle in a letter said:
"Since the clo-e orthc war more than four
tiftb or the internal revenue taxes have
buen abolished, while the tariff taxes re
main f-ttWautially unchanged. Indeed,
on many articles ol necessity ill common
use amoug the people the rates or duty are
higher now than during the war, while on
nearly all e them the duties are
much higher in proportion to the
market value of Abe articles than
they were then. Tke taxes upon the vices
aud luxuries ol the people have been great
ly reduced or entirely abolished, while the
taxes upon the necessaries or lifo and the
tools and implements or labor have been re
tained and- in t-omc instances increased.
Under this policy commerce has been ob
structed, the cot of production increased,
and the earnings ot labor confiscated.
These taxes are uotaiade for revenue, and
they cannot be legitliaateiy or ueneuciauj
maintained for any otter purpose. There
is not an instance in the history of tho
world iu which a government has made its
people rich and prosper! byimposinguu-ncces-ary
taxes upon theai. Kvcry dollar
t-ii.-nn in- t-ivstion is iust tio juucb vvlth-
drawn Irom the produeti capital ol the
country, and rrom the laborer's support,
and therefore the plainest principles or
justice and sound policy demand that the
exaction shall bo reduced to the lowest
limit compatible with public necessities.
"To tax pcoplo for the purpo-Kj ot raising
revenue for the public use is the legitimate
function or government, and ir Uie burden
is cquallj distributed no dlfzen ha. a right
to complain of tax oror!tlncidcnta.rt"eet;
but to impose taxes for at any other pur
po-c is a gro-s abuse or legislative pwer,
and will alwavs provoke agitation, protest
and rc-Istaiice Stability in law affecting
the industrial interests t.r the people i ab
solutely esf ntial to tho continuous and
rapid development of our resource. But
stability can be secured only by ilolu as
nearly as possiinc rxacijiiauec iu m-interest-.
are affected by such legislation."
